Dear friends,

I was very saddened by this article that I read just now on the Buddhist Door website and wondered if anyone had any comments:

Yes Aloka, I read about this recently. Evidently the abbot was being uncooperative about the whole thing, and denied knowing anything about it. Now they are still not surviving.Just makes me feel sad.

:(:(

The article suggests that the tigers were being kept at the monastery for tourism and money-making purposes. That seems like exploitation, to me.

Reports of the death of the innocent tigers are saddening, for sure.
